(PRWEB) January 27, 2016
Stratoscale, the software company sitting at the crossroad of hyperconverged and cloud, today announced it was recognized in the TechTarget Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards for the best IT products and companies of 2016. Stratoscale Symphony received Honorable Mention in the Software-Defined Infrastructure category, as voted on by over 800 readers, noted as “Easing the Path to Private Cloud.”
The TechTarget Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards “recognize the top cloud and data center products and technologies making a difference for IT shops. (These awards are) where readers, industry experts and editors weighed in on the products and technologies that will have the biggest impact on IT operations in the coming year. The award-winning tools will be those helping to run enterprise businesses with efficiency and insight -- whether they're used inside the data center or out.”
In its category, Stratoscale Symphony earned honorable mention, second to only the winner. As Modern Infrastructure writes in its article about the January awards, “Are you building a private cloud, but don’t have the budget for VMware, don’t have the stomach for OpenStack, and don’t want get locked in to a proprietary hyper-converged architecture? Modern Infrastructure readers ... recommended Stratoscale as a software-only software-defined storage stack that offers most of the functionality of commercial offerings, extensive scalability, and less of an up-front integration effort than running on open-source OpenStack.”
Also published in the January write up was comment from Stratoscale customer, Arik Sudman, department manager for systems and storage of Bezeq, an Israeli telecommunications provider that recently began offering infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to its business customers based on Stratoscale and commodity hardware. Sudman said, “We like to do things on our own, in a way that will cost the least money.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized by over 800 of Modern Infrastructure readers and writers in the software-defined infrastructure category,” said Stratoscale founder and CEO Ariel Maislos. “Stratoscale Symphony is the industry’s first integrated software stack converging compute, storage and networking. Modern Infrastructure says we are easing the path to private cloud, and we love that description.”
